Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do? (Paperback)
Michael J. Sandel is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Government at Harvard University, where he has taught since 1980. He has taught his undergraduate course "Justice" to more than 15,000 Harvard students over the years, and video footage of the course was adapted into a PBS television series. Sandel graduated summa cum laude from Brandeis University and received his doctorate from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He served on the George W. Bush administration's President's Council on Bioethics. He lives in Brookline, Massachusetts.
For Michael Sandel, justice is not a spectator sport, The Nations reviewer ofJustice remarked. In his acclaimed bookbased on his legendary Harvard courseSandel offers a rare education in thinking through the complicated issues and controversies we face in public life today. It has emerged as a most lucid and engaging guide for those who yearn for a more robust and thoughtful public discourse. In terms we can all understand, wrote Jonathan Rauch inThe New York Times, Justice confronts us with the concepts that lurk . . . beneath our conflicts.
